Towards a Flow Field Model of Language Processing
The basic idea behind this presentation is that text can only be analysed with reference to somebody or something being its source. This means that there must be a person speaking or writing the text, some perspective by which it is produced, and a speaking or writing mechanism that transports linguistic form and organization into structural information, i.e. text. In principle, there is nothing new in this statement. What is new, however, is that these relationships of text have been operationalized in a system of analysis, named Perspective Text Analysis, in which the transport mechanism makes possible the discovery of the structural information but is naturally separated from it. Traditional language models presuppose a 1-1 relationship between organization and structure and, consequently, miss the perspective dimension.
